 fashion trends for 2024: floral, metallic, crafting, sporty

Pantone is the usual go-to for the color of the year, and this year is no exception. Their top pick for 2024 is a soft orange aptly named Fuzzy Peach. According to Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone’s executive director, this hue reflects our desire for closeness and modern elegance. It's a color that blends compassion with a timeless feel—perfect for adding a warming touch to your labels.

If peach isn’t your cup of tea, there are plenty more trend-forecasting options. Benjamin Moore has thrown their hat into the ring with a shade called Blue Nova—a captivating blend of intergalactic blue and purple. For another blue option, we have C2’s 'Thermal', or else Graham & Brown introduce 'Verdis', a versatile sage green that works well as both a neutral and a standalone color.

How to Integrate Trending Colors into Your Labels?

The vibrant nature of these types of colors makes them perfect for accentuating the finer details on clothing labels. Whether you choose a single standout color against a neutral backdrop or merge contrasting shades for a vibrant label design, the possibilities are endless. The idea is to make your brand stand out, and these blues and peach colors are designed to do just that.

Inspiration From The Runways for 2024

Another great source of inspiration for your new labels includes looking at the runways. These fashion trends in 2024 are not confined to garments alone. Here are some runway trends that are poised to be big, and ones we can see working so well with clothing labels and branding.

 fashion trends for 2024: floral, metallic, crafting, sporty

Floral Motifs: Blossoms are everywhere! 2024 designer runways were awash with romantic floral patterns. Whether you're considering a label shaped like a blooming rose or integrating botanical designs onto square labels, there's something undeniably charming about floral motifs.

Metallics: Shimmer and shine take center stage. Metallic shades, from subtle silver hints to head-to-toe colorful metallics, add a futuristic touch to any outfit. Designing your labels using metallics is a fun way to approach the trend and make your labels truly sparkle. That could be a small metallic thread detail in your woven label, or an all-over metallic printed label.

Crafting: Handmade is the way to go. Crochet, hand-knits, and weaving are all the rage this coming year. While many of our customers are expert crafters, make sure your handmade wares get equally unique custom labels, including care labels to avoid any laundry mishaps. You can even customize your (already custom) clothing labels further by attaching them to your garments with unique specialty stitches to get more of a crafty look.

Sporty: Athletic-inspired looks dominate yet again. From polished polos to chic bomber jackets, the preppy-yet-sporty aesthetic is everywhere. Pair these styles with custom woven patches, adding a touch of vintage flair and brand identity to the outside of your garments, bags, and accessories.

This year offers a rich selection of hues and inspirations for custom clothing labels. Whether you're drawn to the warm embrace of Fuzzy Peach or the cosmic Blue Nova, you can easily find a shade that speaks to you. Moreover, with runway trends spotlighting everything from romantic florals to sporty aesthetics, the possibilities for label designs are limitless. Just remember, your clothing labels aren't just a tag; they are a testament to your brand's identity. So infuse them with your unique flair, and let your labels narrate a story.
